Oh, wonderful. Just wonderful

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | May 23, 2003

So. Father is one of the big four Experts on sexual abuse in the bishops' stable. Indeed, he co-authored the Dallas sexual abuse policy. Now they can apply it to HIM.

'The Rev. Gregory Ingels, who also is a church lawyer, is scheduled to appear Wednesday in Marin County Superior Court on charges that he had oral sex with a 15-year-old boy from Marin Catholic High School in the summer of 1972, two years before he was ordained. Ingels was one of only four experts chosen by the Canon Law Society of America to advise U.S. bishops on abusive clerics. And for the past two decades, he worked on the tribunal of the archdiocese, which considers requests for marriage annulments by Catholics in San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties. According to a one-count criminal complaint filed May 12, Ingels engaged in "substantial sexual conduct" with a child under age 16."

And the Archdiocese has known about these allegations since 1996!!!!!!

I wonder -- do they refer to these consultants as "The Experts" because of thei hands-on experience?
